    I used to get all my supplies from signwarehouse.com.
    Ok, I will contact Sign Warehouse now, thank you.

    Yep. The correct paper, printer and do I HAVE to have the powder I'm hearing about? Or there is a way without it?

    Thanks

    Nitro, here's what I got from my screen printer(the transfer sheets) and here's what I pressed myself and how they came out.

    I did on my first attempt but it was a bit pricey, so I'm looking to cut costs.
    I own the machine and just bought 400 new trucker hats on CL for half the price.
    Just wanting to try to do it all, save cost so I can keep giving them to my customers for free for promotional use.

    No I get it but ususally screen printing shops do both, why I asked with screen printing first.
    Transfers on trucker hats. I need to get some low runs made. I have the hats and I own the hat press.
    Need to master making the heat transfers. Anyway I can talk with one of you?

    Thanks

    I have a screen printing shop. What's your question?

    Like nitro said, those are 2 different techniques.

    Well, first of, I can tell you that screen printing and heat transfer are completely different. What did you need to know?
